German legislation contains provisions on both initial and further vocational training. Three types of continuing training are distinguished: retraining, updating training, and upgrading training. Industries contribute the largest share of funding and participants to continuing training. In-company continuing training differs greatly according to the size of the company and economic sector in question. The organization of in-company training depends on the size, structure, and nature of the company. In small and medium-sized enterprises, the proprietor or personnel department is responsible for continuing training. In most large-scale enterprises, a central personnel or training unit is responsible; in some, continuing training is structured according to the divisional or matrix organization principle. Continuing training through networks is another organizational form used by small and medium-sized companies. Because the field is not formally regulated, formal qualifications and professional careers in continuing vocational training are quite varied. The field of responsibility and the related scope of continuing training personnel depend on the organizational position of the trainers' activities within the company. Future training needs include social skill training and an increasing proportion of enterprise-based training. (A 19-item bibliography and case studies of 2 companies that offer continuing training are included.) (YLB)
